    Hi Leonel – It really depends on your budget and what type of food you’re looking for. At The LINQ, there’s Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen, Chayo, Virgil’s BBQ. Nearby is The Cromwell where you can find GIADA’s Italian food. You could also go across the street to Caesars Palace and the Forum Shops, which both offer several restaurants. On New Year’s Day, you might also want to check out The LINQ’s Hangover Breakfast:
